I've never known a chip shop take so long to serve you. Whatever you ask for you have to wait, it's as if they don't realise you make stuff in advance and leave it in the little hopper thing to keep warm. Shockingly slow. And when you finally get served, the fish is damp and soggy inside, i don't think the fat's hot enough. And tiny portions!

Great tasting fish and chips. Great service and a very clean establishment. Our order was filled within 15 minutes and the staff was very friendly and professional.

We moved to Sale in August and were very pleased to discover that we were minutes away from this amazing chip shop.

A fire over the winter meant we had to try other places and we can now confirm - Lighthouse is by far the best. It's just too bad they run out of haddock so frequently.

The fish and chips are amazing and although lots of the food is cooked to order the wait is horrendous always a minimum of 30 minutes and even longer on a Friday evening. The staff are often too busy chatting to each other and friends outside the shop. I've been put off going here due to the waiting times.

It is such a shame that this chippy can not sort out its slow service. We had to wait almost 1/2 hour for 3 portions of chips last week! Rubbish!
